A quartet of new cigars from Fratello is now heading to stores.

The company has begun shipping the Fratello Space Fresh Pack as well as the Piccolo. Three of the new cigars are part of the Space Fresh Pack, a four-cigar sampler made up of 6 x 50 toros:

  • Fratello Arlequin
  • Fratello Sorella
  • Fratello Bianco II
  • Fratello Classico Toro

All but the Bianco II are new; the Arlequin and Sorella are new blends.

Arlequin uses a Mexican wrapper over an Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers. Sorella’s blend is an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over an Indonesian binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers.

Omar de Frias, Fratello’s founder, has said that he is hoping to get feedback to see if the new blends will become regular additions for the company.

Pricing is $25.

The 4 x 34 Piccolo is Fratello’s least expensive offering to date. It’s part of the Classico line and uses the Classico Classico binder and filler: an Ecuadorian Sumatran binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Peru. The one difference is the wrapper, which is Ecuadorian habano instead of the Nicaraguan habano wrapper that is normally found in the Classico line.

It is priced at $3.30 per cigar and sold in boxes of 100.

All of the new cigars are made by Fratello’s main manufacturing supplier, Joya de Nicaragua.
